Welcome everybody I'm Neil Cavuto fox on top of a president Republican side is -- Ross side on the US constitution.
A new line of attack it opens the White House up to depending appointments it shouldn't have made.
And taking lightly alleges Lazard brands that it shouldn't have even try.
That big on an otherwise good day of economic news for the president may be that ominous for the president.
The Texas Republican congress -- -- Robertson who agrees with his colleague got congress -- Johnson.
Says the president's move is an egregious abuse of power and quite possibly unconstitutional.
I guess it will be up -- to this group but.
Of lawyers that that the congressman wants to examine this but if he did -- beyond what he -- done.
Does that make -- an impeachable offense.
-- impeachment would be an absolute last resort deal I think did bill Johnson's right and I intend to supporting -- that litigation because we need to stop the president that's.
Highest priority would have right now is to box him in and stopping from.
Gotta put pursuing these unconstitutional actions in the way you do that quickly is through the courts whether -- straining order.
For an injunction bill Johnson's right and I support him and -- join him in an effort.
You know I just wonder how widespread the support among your fellow Republicans is those -- because.
You're not routinely but several times did have recess appointments of his -- the most famous of course big John Bolton at the United Nations.
So the argument could be be careful what you wish for because you'll be seeing it again if the Republicans of the White House.
Well they've only recourse we have that will work quickly is legal action to go to court get an injunction.
Or restraining orders -- bill Johnson's right in that respect but down the road deal in the months ahead I think it's important that we pursue this through the appropriations process.
I chair one of the sub committees on appropriations and I've discovered -- that if you control of the -- money.
Their heart and mind follows every time so we need to use the appropriations process and cut off funding.
To the White House to whatever agency.
Like that Eric Holder getting out machine guns to.
Known gang members to stop the and administration from ignoring the law.
We need to make them enforce the law through the appropriations process that's the second fallback position after legal action.
You think they'll congress and that the better part of channeling this might be to recognize.
A middle ground and that is for Republican presidents democratic presidents.
That you know always the opposition parties you've been trying to solve those nominations or prevent a vote altogether.
It maybe this should be -- clock running you have two weeks to get this nominee forward or it's over what what have you but to go to -- steps you're taking.
Might might be over doing it and then -- compel other presidents.
Sit suit to follow suit.
Well this is such a blatant.
The employment the president's -- -- -- is such blatant disregard deal.
Of the senate strenuous opposition to this man.
Be sedated blocked this guy in the president when -- had made the appointment anyway.
In these to a performance of these made the National Labor Relations Board -- clearly in violation of the constitution I think legal actions really about all that we've got right now.
Except for the appropriations process which will pursue in a couple of months but you're right -- that during the Bush Administration.
He did issue signing statements as president that went beyond the scope of what the president's authority is.
This is sort of an ongoing battle -- between -- president's job as Chief Executive Officer to execute.
And enforce the law and the legislative branches responsibility to make sure.
That the president stays within those -- for -- classic.
Tension and that goes back to the origins of the republic indeed congressman thank you good luck and that's it's a messy process thanks --
